to citizenship. marco rubio, senator marco rubio has been talking about that, and we have champions on the democratic side. so i think here we have a potential new dynamic, which is rather than one party focusing on the other, they're focusing on what the electorate said. and that's the pressure and space to go forward. >> terry, what about the violence against women act? the 112th congress failed to pass a reauthorization of that. >> i think is going to continue to try to block it, and shame on him. i think there are a number of republicans, and frankly we have a stronger house now than the 113th. we have a significantly stronger senate which did pass a good bill in the 112th congress. so we are going to face hurdles. eric cantor has simply refused to pass it in the lame duck session because he couldn't get past the idea that tribal authorities would have jurisdiction over perpetrators of sexual assault. i've heard it said what does that make him -- he is coddling rapist. i'm not going to say whether he is or not. but that is certainly the impression he has given to some people. >>
leaders that are growing in our party, like the ones you mentioned including marco rubio, that can really help us deliver the message. absolutely and we have 30 governors, right now. we hold 30 states and if we have some of those governors come forward we'll have a great crop to pick from when it comes to nominating their president. >> rick: quickly, final word from you? is there a republican out there, right now, that you think democrats would least like to face in a future presidential contest, someone who scares you? >> i'll let them do their nominating but if they point to the governors they have serious issues. rick snyder, rick scott, tom corbett, nikki haley? they are all below 40% approval rating and the only guy in a battle ground state that is actually doing decent is john kasich, and he's at 42%. i'm not sure if the model or people they should follow are their governors, they are having significant problems themselves. >> rick: have to leave it there. thanks and thanks for come in. >> arthel: a michigan mother is fighting to ensure the duty dog who served alongside her son is b
have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> florida senator marco rubio was also in the room. and if this is a preview of 2016, some of his fans might be a little bit worried. compared to clinton, he came off as mild-mannered and somewhat of a novice. >> the october 2011 meeting, at that meeting, did this issue come up with regards to the inability of the libyan government to protect our diplomatic institutions? did that issue come up at all in that conversation? >> well, we, obviously, talked about a great deal about the deteriorating threat environment in libya. you know, when i landed in tripoli, i was met by the zintan militia. that was the welcome i had. all these guys, dressed completely in black, holding their automatic weapons. that was my welcoming party. >> rubio told fox news last night, time will tell whether some of the things she said will bear out to be true or not. these things have a way of flushing themselves out. overall, clinton's political strengths were clearly on display. she was prepared, tough when she needed to be, deferential when she wa
marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro
approach as we said tomorrow. he's going to las vegas. but senator marco rubio writes in an op-ed today, i'm quoting him, my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster, and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. that suggests there's a fight brewing already, doesn't it? >> it does, but i think it's more smoke than fire. the biggest difference that we were expecting to see between the senate proposal and the presidential proposal was a pathway to citizenship, and i was pleasantly surprised this morning when i saw that the senate proposal said that citizenship was an option. i don't think there's going to be a lot of fight in terms of the details. both republicans and democrats have come to the realization that we do have to be fair to those immigrants who have been here waiting in line. they may quibble about the details of the fine being $2,000 or $1,500, but ultimately the objective is the same of a fairness to it. >> professor
's colleague, john war, points out on huff post that marco rubio, florida senator, is very smartly trying to change the vocabulary of this debate, detoxify the term amnesty which has allowed talk radio, conservatives to dismiss almost any move on immigration. he's saying what we have under president obama, what we currently have is amnesty. republicans are going to try and change it. he's trying to take the power away from that word. >> all right. we'll see what happens. i saw the other day -- if anybody has an explanation, let me know -- jeb bush, they had approvals/disapprovals, it was that story on hillary and how her approval rating was so high. jeb bush was upside down by ten points. >> it's only his last name. >> maybe they thought it was george. >> that last name. what should he change it to stein? >> how did you come up with that? >>> new orleans enters a brave new era. the hornets are out and the pelicans -- the pelicans are in. that's coming up next in sports. keep it right here on "morning joe."

. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th
you to listen to what senator marco rubio, a member of the senate committee, what he said today at the hearing with john kerry. >> north korea announced that they are developing a weapon that can reach the united states of america and i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of states sponsored terrorism and i hope we'll reverse that. >> you were there about five years ago when the relationship at least seemed to be improving. and what about under the young leader jim jong-un. he has come into office and has been there nearly a year now and has followed his father's hard line, military force, pulling rockets, missile, satellite, nuclear program into their military program. and that is a bit of a worry. also people who are trying to figure out which way to go forward, it looks like he's trying to prove himself as a young leader and he is young and has old military around him and he's trying to project himself on the world stage. so i think the interesting thing will be is there any hope of resumption of the u.s., china, japan, those talks with
